IA Demonstrators

Demonstrators developed by IA in previous research projects

For many of our research projects we develop public demonstrators. Below is a list of demos of (past) projects that are still (again) up and running:

  • SWISH datalab (2016-2017)
    The SWISH datalab provides a transparent data science platform, promoting declarative coding based on the executable notebook metaphor. Developed by Jan Wielemaker in collaboration with many others, partly as part of the European H2020 project VRE4EIC. Hosted by VU (thanks!)

  • Talk of Europe (2015-2017)
    The Talk of Europe project curates Linked Open Data about the European Parliament (EP). The dataset covers all plenary debates held in the EP starting from 1999. Developed by Laura Hollink, Astrid van Aggelen and Jacco van Ossenbruggen in collaboration with Erasmus, VU, DANS and Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. See also our Semantic Web Journal article
     
  • ION demo (2016) 

    The project Images and Text in Online News (ION) is funded from two Amsterdam Data Science student assistant grants in 2015 and 2016. Our aim is to support a large scale analysis of images used in online news. For this purpose, we have constructed and made available the ION corpus, which is the basis of the ION demo. Collaborators: Laura Hollink (CWI, Thomas Mensink (UvA), Demond Elliott (UvA). Student assistant: Oliver Becher. See also our LREC 2016 paper.

  • ARTtagger (2015)
    Game with a purpose developed with the COMMIT/ sealincmedia project. This version was made by D. de Leeuw based on a game developed by Myriam Traub and Jiyin He. See also our ECIR 2014 paper.

  • Newstracker demo (2015)
    Clustering crawled news items on topic, by Jeroen BP Vuurens, Arjen P de Vries, Roi Blanco, Peter Mika, see also our ICTIR 2015 article.

  • LinkedTV News Companion (2014)
    A second screen application for tablets that acts as a companion to viewers when watching the news broadcasts.  See also our ACM TVX paper, the demo video and some of our other LinkedTV demos. Developed by Michiel Hildebrand, Lilia Perez Romero and many others as part of the LinkedTV EU project.

  • classee (2014)
    Advanced visualisation of classification errors in machine learning. Developed by Emma Beauxis-Aussalet, Joost van Doorn, Lynda Hardman and Max Welling, partly in the context of the FP7 project Fish4Knowledge and partly as a Amsterdam Data Science student assistent project.

  • Fish4Knowledge demo (2010-2013)
    Advanced visualisation of fish species counts based on automatic classification of fish species run on raw footage taken from web cams in open ocean conditions (see project publications for details). Developed with F4K partners by Emma Beauxis-Aussalet, Jiyin He and Jacco van Ossenbruggen.

  • Amalgame (2008-2011)
    Interactive, reproducible "white box" alignment tool. By defining incremental alignment strategies, composed out of simple and transparent computational steps, domain experts build alignments they trust. See our TPDL 2011 paper. Developed by Jacco van Ossenbruggen, Michiel Hildebrand and Victor de Boer.

  • LISA comparative search (2009)
    Deploys various visualization tools, such as maps, scatterplot, and barchart, to help identify similarities and differences between the two selected artwork sets. Designed and developed by Alia Amin, Michiel Hildebrand and others. See our IUI 2010 paper.
     
  • MultimediaN E-culture (2006-2010)
    This is the demo that won the ISWC 2006 Semantic Web Challenge (see press release) and was the basis for our later work with VU in the Europeana project. Developed by the MultimediaN E-Culture team.

  • /facet (2006)
    One of the first facet browsers running on arbitrary RDF data. Developed as part of the Dutch national MultimediaN E-culture project by Michiel Hildebrand et al. See also our ISWC 2006 paper.

  • VAMP (2005-2010)
    A Semantic Validation Service for MPEG-7 Profile Descriptions. Developed by Raphaël Troncy, Werner Bailer, Martin Höffernig, and Michael Hausenblas, partly under the K-Space EU project. See also our MTAP 2010 paper. Hosted by Joanneum (thanks!).

  • Vox Populi  (2005)
    Automatic generation of biased video sequences based on rhetorical annotations. Developed by Stefano Bocconi as part of the NWO TokeN program. See also our Hypertext 2005 and JWS 2008  papers.
